The Northwestern State Demons are riding a 4-game losing streak and the defensive effort just isn't there. And it's not like Northwestern State has had the toughest schedule in the world as it's lost to SFA, Maine and North Florida. The Presbyterian Blue Hose didn't look great last night, but they're finding ways to win overall, and they beat a North Florida side that Northwestern State lost to yesterday. I have to side with Presbyterian for the bounce back victory.
